The city council has approved a variant to the plan for the Materials Factory project by Stefano Boeri Architetti, a redevelopment of the entire Relluce plant complex in the municipality of Ascoli Piceno.
The project aims to transform the space into a ‘factory of the future’: a place where research, energy production and recycling meet, while generating a hub for art and culture.
The project also envisages the construction of a renewable energy production field whose total surface area is estimated at 12,368 square metres, with the aim of implementing clean energy production in the area and establishing a true energy community, from which neighbouring municipalities could benefit.
The “Materials Factory” presents itself as a unique example of its kind, combining a production phase with one of recovery and reuse of resources, all set in an architectural context aimed at sustainability, integration with art, and minimal environmental impact. The project thus stands as an example of an integrated architectural approach, dialoguing with the context, multiplying the functions it hosts and aiming at a minimum consumption of resources, becoming to all intents and purposes a generator of culture and clean energy, a true productive ecosystem.
“We have presented the city with an important project developed by Stefano Boeri Architetti for the development of a facility to which the forest of memories will be added, and a planting of plants. This variant is necessary in order to be able to develop this environmentally very ambitious project,” says Mayor Marco Fioravanti.
